Red Butte Gardens

A few weeks ago I took the kid fellas to meet my parents and sibs at Red Butte Gardens at the University of Utah. We wanted to take advantage of the cool weather, the weekday lack of crowds, and a few free passes. The gardens are kinda pricey...$8 for adults and $6 for kids 3 and up. But, if you are into horticulture or photography, fresh air and the occasional rattlesnake, this place is pretty cool. Oh...and it is BEAUTIFUL! It was surprisingly fun for the boys. The trails gently slope through the hills, making it a nice little walk for all ages. My favorite part was the Herb Garden and Remi and Marshall seemed to like running on the grass of the Wedding Lawn the best. The Garden also has an awesome children's area that is perfect for Remi's age on up. The only downside about visiting is you might get distracted and not realize that dinnertime has come and gone. Then on the way home when you have two children crying because of hungry tummies, you might stop at Crown Burger and your toothless toddler inhales a grilled cheese sandwich with the hunger of ten men. Other than that, Red Butte Gardens is a beautifully stunning, clean and relaxing place to be!
